Crochet Heart Pillow

Crochet Heart Pillow made with a decorative large Celtic Knot and red crocheted cords appliqued on a bright blue crocheted pillow - pillow is laying on a white blanket

Crochet Heart Pillow

This Crochet Heart Pillow combines a pretty metallic-blend yarn with a chunky blanket yarn. When I saw the Red Heart Super Saver Metallic yarn in red I wanted to make a new Celtic Knot design in time for Valentine’s Day. I love how it is a pretty red with a matching red metallic strand wound around it. This Crochet Heart Pillow features a large Celtic Knot heart that is created with basic crochet stitches and a simple pillow backing also made with a basic crochet stitch.

Celtic Knot Heart – Easy to Weave with Included Actual-Size Diagram

At first glance this Crochet Heart Pillow might look too complicated to attempt but the Celtic Knot design is actually easier than it looks. It is made of 2 crocheted cords that are woven over and under each other to create the signature heart shape. To help you make this Celtic Knot design I have included an actual size detailed diagram of the heart. You just need to print it out and put it together with tape (since it is larger than an 8 1/2 x 11″ piece of computer paper) so you can follow along the paths to weave the knot. Everything is explained in the instructions but if you are someone who prefers a demonstration, then I also provide a video tutorial for how to put the diagram together and how to weave the knot.
